I thank the hon. member for his point of order. The relevance rule does apply to all debate in the House, and he intimated a good understanding of that convention as it applies to debate.
I recognize that the hon. member for Mississauga—Lakeshore is in the second part of his remarks, the first part having been interrupted earlier for question period and for statements by members, so perhaps he is just in the process of bringing the House up to date on some of those points. I am sure he will get around to the question that is before the House this afternoon before he finishes up.
The hon. member for Mississauga—Lakeshore.
